PHILIPPE Lacoste, the director of external relations of Lacoste S.A., had good reason to be mad.His suitcase was missing when he arrived in Bangkok for the inaugural Asian launch of their Spring/ Summer 2007 collection.
Yet this charming Frenchman was calm as he proudly talked about the giant clothing brand and its efforts to move with the times.But then again, this official spokesperson for the company is probably used to the perils of air travel due to his frequent trips around the world to preserve the values that the famous crocodile logo represents.
"The logo is a symbol of quality, style and relaxed elegance," said Philippe and of course, it remains very "personal" to him because it refers to the nickname given to his grandfather and the company's founder, René Lacoste, who was a legendary tennis champion boasting three French Open, two Wimbledon and two US Open titles.
...
"My grandfather was always trying to improve things," said Philippe.
...
An epitome of the Lacoste man, who is "cheerful, relaxed and elegant", Philippe professed a preference for bold colours like yellow and bright pink.
...
Our loyal customers get old too and if we do not move ahead, it's a good way for the brand to die," Philippe says with a grin. "Preppy" was fashionable again and inevitably a "modern twist" was much needed to attract the younger generation of customers.In 2002, Christophe Lemaire, one of France's sharpest designers, joined Lacoste as creative director and to date, has successfully transformed the brand into a young, upbeat and sexy fashion label.
...
To maintain the momentum, Lacoste also produced a stream of products associated with leisurewear ranging from bags, shoes and watches to fashion accessories and fragrances."In 1997, our product mix was 92 per cent clothing, eight per cent accessories.Today it's 60 per cent clothes and 40 per cent in other products.And global sales have doubled too.Shoes have also done exceptionally well - along with bags, they make up seven percent of total sales," said Philippe who is also the director for the footwear and bag division."There is also great potential in Asia, of course.The infrastructure, education, people and knowledge are moving so fast and we (Lacoste) want to be part of it.This is only the beginning," enthused Philippe on the booming Asian market for the brand. Today, Lacoste can be found in modern boutiques across Asia and is fast expanding its presence in Malaysia.And on that positive note, Philippe's missing suitcase in transit - containing his "navy blazer, chinos, jeans and lots of Lacoste polo shirts" - was found and on its way to the hotel.
Lacoste loses copyright suit against Crocodile - March 27, 2004
business-times.asia1.com.sg, 27 Mar 2004 [cached]
The recent case in Shanghai stems from a trademark application made by Lacoste in 1995 in a 'defensive move'.Weary from several trademark conflicts in Asia since the 1970s, Lacoste said it decided to strengthen its trademark protection strategy in China by filing for several trademark applications using a left-facing reptile.
...
Lacoste director Philippe Lacoste added that his company never intended to use the left-facing variant trademark and never did.Lacoste has yet to decide on appealing against the ruling.Meanwhile, the recent verdict marks the beginning of more court battles ahead over trademark rights in China.
'The Shanghai Court merely stated that La Chemise Lacoste should not have reproduced the Crocodile International logo, but this does not mean that Crocodile International may use it as a trademark,' Lacoste said in a statement.
In 1980, Lacoste successfully registered its right-facing reptile trademark in China and started its first sales there in 1984.Crocodile entered the China market in 1993.In the same year, Crocodile sought registration for a trademark featuring a left-looking reptile and the brand Cartelo.This was later opposed by Lacoste, which claims that the reptile logo is an infringement of its own trademark rights in China.
Noting that Crocodile continued to sell goods with the left-facing reptile logo, Lacoste sued in May 2000.
The case is still pending.
The companies have previously settled trademark disputes in other countries through mutual agreements.In Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and Taiwan - where Crocodile had obtained trademark rights before the French firm - Lacoste agreed to pay US$1.5 million to Crocodile to be allowed to register its trademark.
